Fox: Bossie: Sessions Must Appoint Special Counsel to Investigate Uranium One Deal

David Bossie said Attorney General Jeff Sessions must appoint a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal, because that's the only way to get to the bottom of it.

This comes amid renewed scrutiny of the controversial 2010 uranium deal, which gave Russia control of part of the uranium supply in the U.S. The deal occurred while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, and questions have been raised about money routed to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton around that same time from Russian interests.

Hillary Clinton said reports about her ties to the Russian nuclear deal are "baloney," claiming that they have been "debunked repeatedly."

"I've heard her story before of, 'this is old news,'" Bossie said on "Outnumbered" today. "Jeff Sessions, who is a law-and-order attorney general, must appoint a special counsel for the Uranium One investigation. It has to happen."

The Hill: Bill Clinton sought State’s permission to meet with Russian nuclear official during Obama uranium decision

As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.

Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.

“In the context of a possible trip to Russia at the end of June, WJC is being asked to see the business/government folks below. Would State have concerns about WJC seeing any of these folks,” Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote the State Department on May 14, 2010, using the former president’s initials and forwarding the list of names to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s team.

The email went to two of Hillary Clinton’s most senior advisers, Jake Sullivan and Cheryl Mills.

The approval question, however, sat inside State for nearly two weeks without an answer, prompting Desai to make multiple pleas for a decision.

“Dear Jake, we urgently need feedback on this. Thanks, Ami,” the former president’s aide wrote in early June.

Sullivan finally responded on June 7, 2010, asking a fellow State official “What’s the deal w this?”

The documents don’t indicate what decision the State Department finally made. But current and former aides to both Clintons told The Hill on Thursday the request to meet the various Russians came from other people, and the ex-president’s aides and State decided in the end not to hold any of the meetings with the Russians on the list.

...

The Hill was alerted to Bill Clinton’s attempted meeting with Dvorkovich from a nonpolitical source involved in the FBI investigation into Russian nuclear corruption. The Hill then scoured through thousands of pages of documents released under Freedom of Information Act requests over the past four years and located the Bill Clinton emails in a batch delivered to the conservative group Citizens United.

The head of that group, David Bossie, said Thursday the documents forced into the public by federal lawsuits continue to shed light on new questions arising from Hillary Clinton’s time at State, and that Citizens United still gets documents released almost every month.

“Citizens United continues to unearth important information about the relationship between Hillary Clinton’s State Department and the Clinton Foundation through our ongoing investigations and litigation,” he said.

WSJ: The Citizens United Disaster That Wasn’t

Critics warned that a flood of corporate money would irreparably taint politics. No such thing happened.

When the Supreme Court announced its 2010 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the public condemnation from certain quarters was fierce. The notion that a corporation would spend large sums of money to support or denounce a political candidate struck many Americans as deeply troubling. Some saw the court’s 5-4 ruling, which held that corporate political spending is protected by the First Amendment, as constituting a grave threat to the democratic fabric of society.

“Starting today, corporations with large war chests to deploy on electioneering may find democratically elected bodies becoming much more attuned to their interests,” Justice John Paul Stevens wrote in a 90-page dissenting opinion. He retired from the Supreme Court at the end of that term and later suggested a constitutional amendment to overturn the ruling.

Many of Citizens United’s harshest critics imagined a nation controlled by multibillion-dollar corporations that would dictate business-friendly legislation to paid-for lawmakers. A New York Times editorial predicted that the ruling would “thrust politics back to the robber-baron era of the 19th century” by allowing “corporations to use their vast treasuries to overwhelm elections.” The Washington Post warned that “corporate money, never lacking in the American political process, may now overwhelm both the contributions of individuals and the faith they may harbor in their democracy.” The San Francisco Chronicle warned that “voters should prepare for the worst: cash-drenched elections presided over by free-spending corporations.”

Since those predictions, two presidential and four congressional elections have come and gone. There’s now solid data, filed with the Federal Election Commission, showing how much money corporations have spent in recent elections. It turns out the apocalyptic forecasts were not just inaccurate but utterly insupportable.

Bossie: The Las Vegas attack's unsung heroes - say a prayer of thanks for our first responders

Monday was a dark day in American history.   The massacre of innocence in Las Vegas that left 59 dead and more than 500 wounded and injured at the hands of a shooter perched on the 32nd floor of a high rise casino hotel is a real-life nightmare that reminds us that there is "pure evil" in the world. 

President Trump delivered a stirring tribute to those who perished as well as the unsung heroes of the Las Vegas massacre. First responders ran toward an active shooter situation that became a mass casualty event. As scores of terrified concert goers ran for their lives, police, fire, and other emergency personnel acted quickly to subdue the gunman and treat the wounded.

Today we should all stop and say a prayer of thanks for our police men and women - the thin blue line – who quietly and without fanfare, go about their jobs knowing that a tragedy may come their way at any moment. We’ve already started hearing the stories about the bravery of those who sacrificed their lives so others might live as concert goers responded to the call of their fellow citizens in need.

Sunday night unthinkable tragedy came to Vegas and our first responders, police, fire, and emergency workers, stepped up with extraordinary valor and their acts of courage saved lives. As a volunteer firefighter/EMT in Maryland for over fifteen years, I know that the scene from last night's attack will be seared into the minds of the first responders for the rest of their lives. When these American heroes arrived at the scene, little did they know that they would be entering a war zone with a battlefield of dead and wounded. These first responders didn't think twice, they went to work - just like they always do. These unthinkable images will have a deep psychological impact on the police and first responders who found themselves on the front line of terror. They deserve our deepest gratitude.

Now the doctors and nurses and hospital workers will work around the clock to saves lives and heal the wounded. Like New York City, Sandy Hook, Boston, Orlando, and others before, the Las Vegas community will rise to the occasion and come together. Americans from around the country will hold them up in prayer every step of the way. President Trump will do his part and lead by example as comforter-in-chief when he visits Nevada on Wednesday. His respect for the men and women of law enforcement, fire service, EMS, and hospital medical staff is apparent and that makes me very proud of our president.

These are the dark times when petty partisan politics and the left's desperate assault on the 2nd Amendment should take a back seat. All of us should be reflecting about what is truly important in our lives and in our country instead.

When violent events take place, when horrific acts unfold in any town at any moment in our country, I am grateful for our everyday heroes, our first responders and leaders like President Trump and Vice President Pence who take time to honor their service.

David N. Bossie is President of Citizens United, a Fox News Contributor and the former Deputy Campaign Manager for Donald Trump for President.

Reuters: U.S. visas to six Muslim nations drop after Supreme Court backs travel ban

Michael Boos, general counsel for the conservative nonprofit Citizens United, which filed a brief to the Supreme Court in support of the Trump administration in the travel ban case, said the figures show the ban is having its intended effect.

"Clearly the purpose of the temporary ban was to reduce the number of visas that would be issued to persons from the affected countries, so it's not surprising that...when the court reinstated the ban, the number of visas would have dramatically diminished," Boos said. "If people are deterred from seeking admission to the United States because they're going to go through a vetting process that's real and substantial, then maybe they shouldn't be coming here in the first place."
